Roma offload Felix Afena-Gyan on permanent transfer to Cremonese

Roma have sold Felix Afena-Gyan to Cremonese just weeks after he signed a contract extension with the club.

Felix had been the subject of speculation for a while after a breakout season in which he ultimately lost steam, but Roma renewed his terms with the club in early July.

By late August, though, they have changed their mind about the striker – partially to help them clear space for recent arrival, Andrea Belotti.

It has now been confirmed that Felix has left on a permanent transfer to Cremonese, whom Roma faced recently and beat 1-0.

The Ghana international did not feature in that match, or any others this season, so leaves the club with just two goals from 22 appearances to his name.

In a farewell message on social media, Felix wrote: “I’m grateful to AS Roma, the technical team and staff for the precious opportunity and support I have enjoyed in the last year and a half.

“My utmost love to the manager Jose Mourinho. The last seven months with you have totally changed my life. Thank you for believing in me.

“To my former teammates and Roma fans, I cherish the wonderful moments we shared together.

“Thank you Mr Alberto De Rossi for the role you played in my growth. It was a huge honour to put on the Roma shirt.”

Roma have reportedly earned around €6m from Felix’s sale.
